Hi and welcome to my little piece of the Internet!
My name is Julia and if you're here, you're probably curious as to who I am and why you should keep coming back to my blog (and you definitely should).
One day back in 2013 I decided to take my then 18-year-old self and move to London. I was broke, naive and overly excited to start a life on my own in a city I always wanted to live in. Fast forward 5 years and I'm still broke, slightly less naive and I get way too excited if I get on the tube and there's a free seat for me. The past 5 years have taught me how to survive in the crowds and not lose your bag, where to find a coffee that will keep you awake for more than 5 minutes and that Primark is only good to shop at right after the opening times when no one is there. I still don't know how to call the doctors and make an appointment without being ridiculously nervous so I most likely won't help you with that.
Glass of Class started as an idea to keep me sane when I bravely decided to quit my job after 3 months because it wasn't for me and had to deal with being unemployed for the next year. Now it's a place where you can find my rants on how unfair it is for women to bleed once a month. advice on what to buy if your underboob sweat is getting on your tits (somewhat literally) and more beauty and lifestyle related ramblings.
You can also join me on my sustainable lifestyle journey fuelled by the newly-discovered passion to save the planet. By no means am I an expert (in sustainability or anything else to be fair), but I am trying my best to make the Earth last a lot longer than it's going to if we don't change anything. No, I'm not vegan nor am I planning on becoming one, but it doesn't mean I stuff my face with animal-based products 24/7. Turning to a more plant-based diet was the first step in my journey, but I'm also purchasing a ridiculous amount of reusable products. Any excuse to go shopping is good, right? So keep your eyes peeled if you're keen to find out about sustainable living on a budget.
Make sure to check out my posts and social media and if you like what you see let me know and come back more often!
I hope to see you again soon xx
